I'm a computer informatics student at the Shumen university in Bulgaria. I'm interested mainly in lisp(and clojure) and functional programming. I hold no illusions about my ignorance.

comment How were some language communities (eg, Ruby and Python) able to prevent fragmentation while others (eg, Lisp or ML) were not?
@MSalters Common Lisp was actually a (fairly successful IMO) effort to hammer out the incompatibilities in the various maclisp dialects dictated among other things by business use(and also DARPA wanted all the research labs it funded to be able to share code more easily). Today other than scheme, clojure and common lisp, there are no practical general purpose lisps, and these three are different enough, have very separate communities with separate cultures and history to not count them as dialects of the same language anymore than java and C++ are.
